Good luck with it!

Yeah, I hunted down an article that mentions a DOS-based tool for the Kingston SSD Now V+ and Corsair P256 SSD that have the Samsung drive controller:

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/sto...-ssd-review/10

It's a tool called HDD Erase.

I guess it's something I'll have to watch out for when the drive becomes sluggish, back up the drive, wipe and re-image it to keep it in good order.

Thanks again for the info. I'm gonna try to get the tools tomorrow and create the Slipstreamed CD of XP Pro x64 with SP3 integrated with the AMD RAID drivers setup.

I hope I can get this done before Christmas

Download a program called nLite 1.4.9.1 and use that to slipstream the XP boot disk. I have used it before, and I think I might even have a SB750 slipstreamed XP x64 disk.

Good Luck!

Cool. Yeah, I just found out about nlite while reading. Looks like it makes it easier than the guide I found by far

If I can't figure it all out, I'll let you know if you have that XP Pro x64 slipstream already hanging around somewhere.

Oh btw just for note: I was messing with my new machine earlier, and I was tinkering with the OC on 4 cores and had it fairly stable at 3.7GHz or so. I am gonna make this box a Win XP Pro x64/Win 7 Pro x64/Kubuntu Linux 8.04 triple boot box. So, this is gonna end up being a fun project.

Hopefully I don't wear out the SSD before then!

Thanks again for all your help!

300 x 13 is where I'm with that and my Vcore is set to 1.625v (1.616v in CPU-Z)

If I run more than 2 cores (Start running prime95, Smfft's on 2 cores to start) in Prime95 SmFFT's, as Soon as I hit the okay button to start the 3 core Smfft test the PC Reboots (without the horizontal lines)...
I figured out why the one was running faster it was a background program. Fresh reboot with nothing starting up fixed that issue.

Good job, buddy!

Thanks man I am yet to call it totally stable at that voltage with ACC as I only let it run past where it would fail every time. I am going to let it run for a few Hrs like this and report back.

The corsair dominator gt's actually work REALLY REALLY well with this board. Really surprised.

I'm still fine tuning as I'm trying to find a balance between NB frequency and CPU freqnecy and Ram timings. Upping as I pass 5 passes of linux.

E,

"I figured out why the one was running faster it was a background program. Fresh reboot with nothing starting up fixed that issue."


So the others were running slow because of the program running in the background? Hope I'm not missing something.



Spec,

What version of AOD is that?
